      I am not saying there is any thing wrong. Like some people like to read, some people don't. There is no wrong or right. But, we have to live with our decisions. And by "we" I mean myself and most, if not all people. I am guessing, because I do not know, that most people have the same processes. And I, certainly intend to change my process and perspectives, but I have found that making this change is no simple matter. Kind of like, simply deciding to be happy. Most of us can be happy for a while, but always being happy is beyond most of us.

      I am not preaching or even trying to convince anyone. I am simply sharing an idea or perhaps an realization, that I had. I did receive an invitation, to contribute.
      ....I was kind of hoping, someone in the group, had a similar realization and there would be exchange of experience in this realm.

      If what `WE' are all doing, is `wrong', and in so doing then missing the real drama of life, then why don't YOU stop doing it and go off and experience the real drama of life? I am not complaining, and life has been wonderful and still is. And who is the `WE' of whom you speak? How many peoples lives are you living and knowing? You can only know one, your own. Is it good? Why don't you answer questions if I may be so bold as to ask?

And what direct experience we are aware of is interpreted by our memories of the past, in context of our beliefs, judged by our fears, and cast into neat categories that have meaning only to our sense of self. While this process is normal, we are almost unaware of all the action going on around us. The dramas are being played out all around us. We are so focus on own story, that most of these other-dramas have no meaning. But this attitude is very narrow. We have no idea, what we are missing. We have no idea, what missed opportunities may show us.
